## What happens to distance if force is doubled?

If the mass of one of the objects is doubled, then the force of gravity between them is doubled. Since gravitational force is inversely proportional to the square of the separation distance between the two interacting objects, more separation distance will result in weaker gravitational forces.

## What is the rule for the relationship between force and distance?

The inverse square law tells us that the force on an object due to another is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

**How would the force change between two objects if the distance were to be halved 1 2r?**

Explanation: The force between the two charges is directly proportional to the product of the charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Hence, if distance between charges is halved (charges remaining kept constant), the force between the two charges is quadrupled.

**How would force change between two objects if the distance between them were to be doubled to 2r?**

So as two objects are separated from each other, the force of gravitational attraction between them also decreases. If the separation distance between two objects is doubled (increased by a factor of 2), then the force of gravitational attraction is decreased by a factor of 4 (2 raised to the second power).

### How does the force of gravitation between two objects change when the distance between them is increased to double?

According to the universal law ofgravitation,the magnitude of gravitational force between 2 objects is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. So,if the distance betweenthe 2 objects is doubled,then thegravitational force will become one-fourth.

### What happens to the force between two objects if the distance between two objects is halved?

When distance between objects is halved, gravitational force becomes four times.

**What happens to the force between two objects if the mass of one object is doubled Class 9?**

Answer: From the relationship, (i) If the mass of one object (say body 1) is doubled, then Thus, the gravitational force between the two objects gets doubled. (ii) If the distance between the two objects is doubled, then Thus, the gravitational force between the two objects becomes one-fourth.

**How does the force of gravitation between two objects change when?**

How does the force of gravitation between two objects change when the distance between them is reduced to half? Ans. The force of gravitation between two objects is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them therefore the gravity will become four times if distance between them is reduced to half.

#### What happens to force when distance is doubled?

For example, if the distance between them is doubled the force will be reduced to 1/4 of the original value. Conversely, if the distance is halved, the force will be quadruple (4 times) If the distance between them is tripled, the force will be reduced to 1/9 of the original value.

So the force is proportional to the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance. If you double each mass, you’ve increased the force by 2*2 or 4. If you halve the distance you’ve increased the force by 2*2 or 4. So the combined result would increase the force by a factor of 16.

**What is the total force between two objects with mass doubled?**

F g = 2 ⋅ 2 1 4 = 16. This is clearly not your force, unless all of your variables were equal to 1. This just means that for a situation where your masses were doubled and your distance became half of what it was, the total gravitational force between them would be 16 times greater.

**How does the force of gravity between two objects change?**

The force of gravity between two objects will decrease as the distance between them increases. The two most important factors affecting the gravitational force between two objects are their mass and the distance between their centers. As mass increases, so does the force of gravity,…
